"We invite you to the 2004 annual Philfest!
What is Philfest you ask? Well, long story short, it is when a group of staff members who have worked at a camp called Philmont gather together around the campfire swapping stories of adventure and their time at the ranch. As the years have passed, anyone who enjoys the outdoors, hanging out with friends and visiting with fellow staff members can join in the festivities. This year, we hope to have a few new friends from Connecticut attending.
Having this event so late in the year may make it a bit more chilly than normal so to help we will have to have a bigger fire! That's right; the law of Pyrodynamics says that there is a direct relation to the dropping temperature and the size of the fire. :-) If the weather is bad, we will go to plan B.
For any of the out of town guests, please let me know if you are planning on needing a place to crash. For those who plan on arriving Friday night and for those 'townies', Friday night will be the
Pre-Philfest with most likely dinner and the Illini Hockey game followed by billiards and your beverage of choice at one of the local establishments.
Enough talk you say! Detail you want? Here they are.
Saturday, November 6 at 8 p.m. is when the fire will start. Come when you can and stay as long as you want. For those interested in attending, let me know and I will send out more details and information as the event draws nearer.
For anyone who has never attend I suggest you dress warm, bring a crazy creek or camping/folding chair and as always, it is BYOB. Snacks to share are always welcome.
Hope to see you all soon, "
P.S. It's in Urbana, IL and I'd be happy to give you more details if you'd like to e-mail or IM me.
